Prednisone for implantation

Dear Dr Wisot

I wanted to ask when you use prednisone for implantation? If at all?

I have ANA 1:160 while on baby aspirin. Would this be an indication for prednisone?

I read there is risk of cleft lip and cleft pallet but the chance is about 1:700 normally, but with prednisone during 1st trimester its about 1:175. Is this a high risk or is the benefit to implantation a lot more?
